Welps I got rear-ended by a teen about a month ago while he was using his cellphone. It was a 55mph zone and I came to a full stop because some dick face ran a stop sign (I had right of way, no stop sign). The kid clipped my rear right and managed to tear of the bumper and push/punctured my exhaust. The damage wasnt extensive, but I managed to injure my neck and back (Im 5'6" and 125lbs). Anyway, I didnt get an ambulance, but I started to hurt right about 30min to an hour after the incident and I checked into the local ER; now seeing a chiropractor. I was wondering what is the typical settlement for these cases? My total medical bills is about $5000, car repair is about $3500 and I took about 3.5 days off work because I couldn't work. Can I include the hours I spent taking time off for chiropractor visits? I dont have any worker's comp or any type of benefits yet so everything has been out of pocket or put on a tab. Im not looking to get an attorney unless I feel its an unfair amount, but we will see. Thanks for inputs fellas! CLIFFNOTE: I got rear-ended, total bill for meds+car payment is $8500. What can I expect for settlement and can I add hours to wages lost that I used to visit the chiropractor.
